Senior Moments: Tribe beats top seeded Charleston in OT

The emotional rollercoaster of Senior Day took a number of turns on Saturday afternoon at Kaplan Arena, going from excitement to gut-wrenching to jubilation.

After Charleston’s Grant Riller banked in a 35-footer to send the game to overtime, the William & Mary men’s basketball team answered the bell in the extra session to pull out a thrilling 114-104 victory.

The Tribe scored 17 of the game’s final 22 points to cement the win. Senior guard David Cohn sparked the Tribe effort with a career-high 30 points to go along with nine assists.

Cohn also crossed the 1000 college career point mark as shown in the video below.

Senior Connor Burchfield and sophomore Nathan Knight each notched 19 points in the win. Burchfield was a perfect 3-of-3 from 3-point range, while Knight added six rebounds and five assists.

The Tribe next travels to North Charleston, S.C, to compete in the CAA Championship, March 3-6, at the North Charleston Coliseum. W&M will be the No. 4 seed in the tournament, and will face No. 5 seed Towson at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 4.
